Oregon State University
School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
Multiple Faculty Positions In Computer Science
The School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Oregon State University invites applications for several full-time, nine-month, tenure-track faculty positions. As a land grant institution committed to teaching, research, and outreach, and engagement, Oregon State University promotes economic, social, cultural, and environmental progress for the people of Oregon, the nation, and the world. In support of this mission, the College of Engineering recently updated its strategic plan to advance its achievement in high impact research, excellent preparation of all our students, and developing a community of faculty, students, and staff that is increasingly more inclusive, collaborative, diverse, and centered on student success. Faculty candidates are sought in areas that include the following: Software Engineering, ArtificialIntelligence/Machine Learning, Cybersecurity, Systems, and Theoretical Computer Science. Applicants should demonstrate a strong commitment and capacity to initiate newly funded research as well as to expand and complement existing research programs in the OSU College of Engineering and beyond. Furthermore, applicants should demonstrate a strong commitment to undergraduate and graduate teaching; some successful candidates may also have the opportunity to teach in the school’s highly ranked online computer science program. Applicants are expected to mentor students and promote equitable outcomes among learners of diverse and underrepresented identity groups. Appointment is anticipated at the Assistant Professor rank, but candidates with exceptional qualifications may be considered for appointment at the rank of Associate or Full Professor. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, or a closely related discipline.
Oregon State University is located at the heart of Oregon’s Willamette Valley and close to Portland’s Silicon Forest with numerous collaboration opportunities. The School of EECS has 60 tenured/tenure-track faculty members and 435 graduate students (225 Ph.D. students). Among the faculty, we have two members of the National Academy of Engineering, 18 professional society (IEEE and ACM) Fellows, and 25 Young Investigator/CAREER Award recipients. Among our several areas of distinction is a widely recognized program in usability engineering aimed at eliminating gender bias in software and promoting inclusive technology. We have recently launched Masters and Ph.D. degrees in Artificial Intelligence with the first cohort of students to start in the Fall of 2021. Many faculty members of the School of EECS are also active participants in the recently established Collaborative Robotics and Intelligent Systems (CoRIS) Institute and the Pervasive Personalized Intelligence Center.
Corvallis has been ranked #1 on a list of “Best Places for Work-Life Balance”, and is within easy reach of Portland, Eugene, the Cascade mountain range, and the Oregon Coast. Oregon State University has a strong institutional commitment to diversity and multiculturalism and provides a welcoming atmosphere with unique professional opportunities for leaders from underrepresented groups. We are an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer, and particularly encourage applications from members of historically underrepresented racial/ethnic groups, women, individuals with disabilities, veterans, LGBTQ community members, and others who share our vision of an inclusive community. The College of Engineering ranks high nationally in terms of the percentage of women faculty, and the university actively supports dual-career opportunities.
